We can cover many pre-existing and chronic medical conditions too. Just complete our application form so we can let you know if yours is covered.

What travel insurance options are available and how do I choose?

Our travel insurance policy structure is simple: the core cover is called Medical, and it draws on our medical expertise and experience, so if you want to help protect yourself and your loved ones for medical emergencies resulting from acute unexpected illness or injury, this is ideal.

You can then add Non-Medical and Trip cancellation cover if you wish. These are all serviced by our in-house teams.

It’s that simple. Buy Medical Cover, Medical + Non-Medical Cover, or Medical + Non-Medical + Trip Cancellation Cover.

Single trip vs annual multi-trip travel insurance

A single trip travel insurance policy covers a trip of a defined duration, while annual multi-trip policies can cover all your trips of up to one month each, personal and business, planned or last-minute – for one year. Either way, you usually don’t need to tell us where you are going, but please contact us if you are travelling to high risk areas, such as Iraq or Afghanistan, so we can discuss the cover options available.

If you’re not sure whether single trip or annual multi-trip insurance is more suitable to you, here’s a quick overview of the differences: 

  • Single Trip Travel Insurance policy
    If you don’t travel often, you may prefer to buy a single trip policy. Single trip travel insurance can cover you for one work or personal trip that lasts from 1 to 364 days.
  • Annual Multi-trip Travel Insurance policy
    If you travel even a few times in a year, it makes sense to get a quote for an annual multi-trip travel insurance policy. This will cover you for as many trips (up to a month each) as you can fit into one year: for work or personal travel, worldwide – and we cover a wide range of activities while you are away. If one of your trips does extend beyond a month, you can extend your insurance online by paying a daily premium.

Aside from being convenient, annual multi-trip policies can be less expensive when compared to the cost of multiple single trip policies over a year. Please check the policy benefits, limits and exclusions before you buy, to make sure our cover is right for all your needs.

Still not sure?

You may find it easier to decide if you get a quote for both options. Keep in mind that we give you a 5% discount at checkout if you buy online.

And if you happen to be a Bupa Global International Private Medical Insurance customer, check your policy benefits before travelling to see if they include cover for the country you are going to and other benefits, such as repatriation and evacuation. If you still require medical travel insurance, or you need the additional cover from our add-ons, such as theft, lost luggage and trip cancellation, for example, you can enjoy another 10% off simply by entering your policy number at checkout.
